A good friend of mine, Turk, brought me these last night. He is the one that is crazy about my Maple sausage & bacon.
He buys it up ever time that I make it.
This has got to be one of my favorite side dishes. Heck, I've even made a meal paired with fresh sweet corn.
I started off by washing the beans and taters and quartering the red onion.
Added Lard, Bacon and Liquid.
Cooked for 14 hours on low.
I gotta have a taste.
They're done. Where's my corn? OOPS. Gotta go to the store.
Fresh Green Beans and New Taters
2 pounds Fresh Green Beans, snapped and stemmed
1 pound Fresh New Potatoes, small whole ones or quarter
1 Large Red Onion, quartered
5 Cups Water
3 Tbsp Lard
5 tsp Chicken Base
4 strips thin sliced Bacon
Pepper to taste (1/4 tsp of Malibar)
Wash and clean the fresh veggies.
Quarter the Red Onion.
Place in Crock-Pot.
Combine Water and Chicken Base.
Cut Bacon Slices into 1" pieces and place in Crock-Pot.
Pour liquid mixture over the top.
Cover and set Crock-Pot to low.
Stir every couple hours.
Cook 12-14 hours.
Note: You may use Chicken Broth instead of water and Base. Check and adjust salt level to taste.
Thanks for lookin' and enjoy with your next cook.
